Overall-From the Mid 1900’s to Now
To truly say that certain celebrity parties are the best of all time, one must look at the entire time period of celebrities as we know it. And with television becoming mainstream around the middle of the 20th century, it’s best to rank the top celebrity parties from that point on to the present time. However, there are some cases, where celebrities were known before the TV set came on the scene. Therefore, in consideration of this time period, the following are considered the top celebrity parties of all time:
1. Yves Saint Laurent’s Opium launch party– with this affair being worth a million dollars, money was no factor with the celebration of the launching of this new fragrance of 1978. The designer had an exotic yacht party in New York City, where more than 800 people attended. Celebrities, like Cher, Diana Vreeland, and Truman Capote, attended the affair. Chinese temples, fireworks, a 1,000 pound Buddha, and 2,000 Hawaiian orchids were presented at this extraordinary occasion.
2. Elton John’s 50th birthday party– for his 50th birthday, in 1997, Elton John dressed as Louis XIV, and he invited 500 of his celebrity friends for this over the top soiree.
3. Andy Warhol’s Parties at the Factory– at his loft at 231 East 47th Street, he is known to have thrown rumbustious parties filled with sex, drugs, and the rubbing of elbows with his elite group of celebrities, throughout the 1960s and 1970s. The Factory was decorated with silver spray paint, and aluminum foil, which consisted partly of an amphetamine logic, and partly a snarky statement.
4. Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball– this party was a cleverly disguised self promotion as well as a celebration of him becoming more established in the social scene. He became more established within the social scene, due to his great authorship of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, and his publication earlier in the year of this party, called “In Cold Blood”. In planning for this party three months in advance, the party was worth $16,000. The theme of the party was inspired by the ascot scene from “My Fair Lady”: It was an elegant black and white ball that was accented with bits of red and gold coloring. The party also had 540 guests.
